Pastor Ron Sunday Service October 22

Come into the Ark – This message was delivered in the morning service on October 22, 2023. Primary Text: Genesis 7:1 Supporting Text: Gen. 6:5-6, 11-12; Num. 10:29; Is. 1:18, 55:1; Mat. 22:4, 17; Rev. 22:17, 3:20

The pitch sealed the Ark and made it watertight so that all inside would be saved. The blood of Jesus covers the sins of all who will In Christ the spiritual ark there is — 1. Pardon for every sin-convicted and repentant soul; for every broken-hearted subject. 2. In Him there is peace, which flows to us through His blood; which gives ease to the troubled soul, calms the agitated mind, and is “the acceptable year of the Lord.” 3. In Him there is righteousness, which all His people enjoy —
